City makes transit more family-friendly and affordable 
May 22, 2018

Just in time for festival season, Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is pleased to offer free fares for children 12 and under. The City is committed to making Edmonton more family-friendly by providing accessible and affordable transit for all families.

Effective June 1, children can ride any ETS bus or LRT free of charge if they are accompanied by a fare-paying adult. A family of four with two children will save $13 when they take a round trip.

The free fares apply to all ETS services, including shuttles to the Heritage Festival at Hawrelak Park or other events around the city. 

Unaccompanied children will be required to pay the regular fare when they board ETS transit. Edmonton Public Schools and Edmonton Catholic Schools continue to offer subsidized transit passes to their students.
